This has been an amazing year for OpenSocial. The spec group hammered out the full release 1.0 version of the OpenSocial specification, we cleaned up the APIs, and added a templating system. MySpace launched a major revision of the open platform with our support for the 1.0 specification as well.
All this makes it high time we had a celebration to reconnect and reflect on our achievements as a community, have some drinks, and start planning the next version of OpenSocial. To that end, you're all invited to join us for the OpenSocial State of the Union event being held on May 18th at the San Francisco MySpace offices. Registration is free and food, drinks, and t-shirts will be provided. If you're attending Google I/O the next day, this makes a great warm-up event that will give you a deep dive on what's new in Social Networking and an opportunity to talk face-to-face with the various members of the OpenSocial community and make your voice heard. Hope to see you there!
